Interviews & news
On May 20, 2020, I had the pleasure to be interviewed by Trische' Duckworth, the
Executive Director of Survivors Speak. Tune in for a discussion about how we can work together to make our communities safer and healthier.
I sat down for an interview with Alex Thomas on May 3, 2020 to discuss the issues facing our county and my plans for addressing them. Tune in for a wide-ranging discussion on topics including social determinants of health, economic inequality, and access to vital services.
According to the Equality of Opportunity Study in 2015, growing up in Washtenaw County could hurt children's future earning potential. This is why I have been advocating for a countywide Children’s Savings Accounts program.
Children’s Savings Accounts are asset development tools that can be used as a catalyst for upward economic mobility. My colleagues and I had the opportunity to present our proposal to the Washtenaw County Board of Commissioners on March 9, 2020 about this important issue.
